Publisher's description: In this lavishly illustrated publication Tapio Wirkkala's objects in glass and silver have been given the treatment they so richly merit. In his native Finland the designer is highly esteemed and has influenced many who have come after him. Beautiful pieces are juxtaposed with personal exhibition and workshop photographs, the whole completed with instructive sketches and essays presenting the way Tapio Wirkkala sets to work and how he chooses his materials. The upshot is luminously elegant utilitarian objects and delicate one-off pieces. The designer began to show work as long ago as the documenta III exhibition in 1964.
